In 2014, Guilford College was involved in a Title IX investigation, along with 55 other colleges and universities, by the U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights for the mishandling of sexual assaults reported on campus. The number of colleges on the list has since increased to 117.
Coincidently that year, the College also saw a sudden increase in sexual assaults with a total of nine incidents. According to 10 years of annual security and fire safety reports, the last time that many incidents occurred was during the 2005-2006 school year.
